Central Elgin Planning Office
CEP 66-18 Application for Draft Plan of Subdivision Approval and Zoning By-law Amendment
- Helen Mary Ann Spriet & Red Lion Properties c/o Paul Spriet
Background:- The applicant's agent (David Mihlik) approached the Municipality
with a proposal to develop lands in the northern portion of the Community of Belmont.
The proposal was for a draft plan of subdivision (File No. 34T-CE1801) to create
lots for single detached dwellings in keeping with surrounding development. The
proposed development encompasses 3.305 hectares (8.17 acres) of land and provides
for the development of 32 lots for single-detached dwellings. One new street (Street
"A") is proposed, as well as one block for a public walkway (Block 33). The applicant
has submitted a concurrent application for a zoning by-law amendment in support
of the proposed draft plan of subdivision.
A Motion by Councillor Roberts and Seconded by Councillor Winkworth that Report CEP
66.18 Application for Draft Plan of Subdivision Approval and Zoning By-law Amendment
- Helen Mary Ann Spriet & Red Lion Properties c/o Paul Spriet be received; And further
that Council approve the attached municipal draft plan conditions to be forwarded
to the Manager of Planning for the County of Elgin with a request that they be included
in the County's decision on the proposed draft plan of subdivision.
Deputy Mayor Martyn commented that there was several concerns brought up at the
public meeting about a second entrance into the subdivision. Lloyd Perrin indicated
that the proposed secondary access on Seventh Ave. is to located within 100 metres
of the intersection of Kettle Creek Drive which from a operational standpoint will
be problematic and would be too close to the intersection of Kettle Creek Drive
to be beneficial. The second phase of development will allow operational changes
such as signals at Belmont Road and Seventh.
The Motion was Carried.
CEP 67-18 Affordable Housing & Plan of Subdivision Application 34T-CE1801 - 2526485
Ontario Inc. (Seaglass)
Background: - At its September 24th meeting Council considered a report from
the Planning Department (CEP 59-18) dealing with the zoning by-law and draft plan
of subdivision conditions for the proposed Seaglass development in Port Stanley.
Council approved the zoning by-law amendment, but deferred consideration of the
draft plan conditions pending a report from staff as to if an affordable housing
component could be incorporated into the development as part of the draft plan of
subdivision approval process.
The Municipality's Official Plan contains policies respecting affordable housing.
Those policies are contained within Section 2.3.3 of the Plan. The Plan has set
an affordable housing target of 21.4% of all housing built over a twenty year planning
horizon. The Plan defines affordable housing as:
- 1. in the case of rental housing, the least expensive of:
- a unit for which the rent does not exceed 30 percent of gross annual household income
for low and moderate income households; or
- a unit for which the rent is at or below the average market rent of a unit in the
London CMA regional housing market area;
- 2. in the case of ownership housing, the least expensive of:
- housing for which the purchase price results in annual accommodation costs which
do not exceed 30 percent of the annual median household income for all households;
- housing for which the purchase price is at least 10 percent below the average purchase
price of a resale unit in the London CMA.
- b) Low and moderate income households means:
- 1. In the case of ownership housing, households within comes in the lowest 50 percent
of the income distribution for the regional market area; or
- 2. in the case of rental housing, households with incomes in the lowest 60 percent
of the income distribution for renter households for the regional market area.
incomes are based on the income distribution in the regional market area covering
the St. Thomas/Elgin County Area.
The Plan then goes on to contain policies on implementation to achieve the affordable
housing targets. Those policies include:
- d) all Central Elgin may seek partners to develop affordable housing, including
housing options for seniors and special needs, which may be in either freehold,
condominium or rental tenure.
- e) Central Elgin will work with the Social Housing Administrator and endeavour to participate
in federal/provincial affordable housing programs and urge the federal and provincial
governments to create a stable funding base for affordable housing.
- f) Central Elgin will monitor the achievement of the affordable housing targets as
a part of the 5-year review of this Plan.
- g) Central Elgin will encourage housing projects through a variety of means including
financial incentives that may be associated with Community Improvement Programs,
waiving of fees and other incentives.
These policies reflect how affordable housing is generally implemented in most municipalities,
through partnerships and funding incentives. The incentives are open to all developers
and the municipalities try to work in partnership with the development community
to achieve their affordable housing targets. To target one specific development
in an attempt to leverage affordable housing when a similar condition has not been
sought with other developers would, in my opinion, likely result in a challenge (appeal)
for which there is not much likelihood of success, particularly when the issue has
been raised at such a late stage in the review process.
Council may wish to give consideration to implementation mechanisms such as financial
incentives to encourage affordable housing in future developments. including subsequent
phases of the Seaglass development (Wastell is proposing to construct one of the
proposed apartment buildings in Phase 1, the others will be built over time as market
demand dictates). One common financial tool is the Community Improvement Program
(ClP), through which grants and loans can be made available for incentives such
Planning & Building Fees Rebate Program - the municipality can offer rebates
of fees to property owners for improvements to existing buildings or development
of new buildings that are consistent with the goals of the ClP.
Development Charges Rebate Program - the municipality can offer rebates of
charges to property owners for improvements to existing buildings or development
of new buildings that are consistent with the goals of the CIP.
Parkland Dedication Fee Exemption Program - the municipality can waive the
5% parkland dedication requirement for property owners adding residential units in
the Community Improvement Area or any part thereof.
Property Tax Increment Financing Program - The Tax Increment Equivalent Grant
is intended to stimulate investment by effectively deferring part of the increase
in property taxation as a result of the major development, redevelopment, reconstruction,
or rehabilitation of a lands or building. Grants that are equivalent to a percentage
of the resulting property tax increment are provided to a property owner following the
reassessment of the property.
Without any financial incentives it is unlikely that developers will incorporate affordable housing
at their own cost. it is worth noting that in many centres there is a movement away
from creating affordable housing nodes or projects and rather incorporating affordable housing
into a project that is other wise being marketed at market price rents. This avoids
the stigmatization of those who rely on affordable housing and integrates them more
appropriately into the broader community.
Mayor Marr indicated that he had a conversation today with Wastell representatives
and that Wastell was willing to continue dialog working toward Affordable Housing
and a secondary access route. While looking at Report CEP 67-18, the definition
of Affordable Housing means different things to different people.
Councillor Winkworth commented that it was great that communication will continue
on Affordable Housing as the need is not just an issue in Port Stanley but across
the entire Municipality. We have needs that have to be met and we have to work together.
Deputy Mayor Martyn commented that this was an opportunity to get Central Elgin
on track. Affordable Housing is a Provincial priority and it has to be a Central
Elgin priority. It's about a balanced community, not just poor people, but young
families, first time home owners, empty nesters, retirees. I believe the time is
now, we won't have another opportunity in the near future because of the size of
this development. We must not miss this opportunity. It's up to us to provide incentives,
provide assistance in accessing any Provincial or Federal Affordable Housing grants
or programs. If it's not in the agreement, I believe it will not happen. I believe
this very strongly and would like this to be incorporated into the conditions that
Affordable Housing in the development must be at least phased in with support from
Councillor McNeil commented that "With all the subdivisions that we have approved
in my term of the last eight years, why haven't we got it in our DNA, why haven't
we insisted. Well I guess we failed." It's easy to say Affordable Housing, but it
encompasses all kinds of ways to accomplish this, some of which are social housing,
some are geared to income, and some are subsidized. We are about to commence a partnership
that could last up to twenty years. I am satisfied with Wastell's commitment knowing
that we will hold them to account.
Discussion continued concerning financial incentives needed to get Affordable Housing
in Port Stanley as discussed in Report CEP 67-18 and of the cost to Central Elgin
for getting Affordable Housing built. Issues on how to determine what was considered
to be and how to qualify for Affordable Housing was also discussed.
Councillor Roberts commented that she had faith in the developers and that they
have been working with Central Elgin right from the beginning. I do have a problem
with implementing something again for one, and not having policy in place for us.
I would prefer to have something solid in place before those conditions put on a
Councillor Crevits commented that Wastell would have looked at this development
differently had those conditions been known right from the start. We have to make
it known that Affordable Housing is a requirement in Central Elgin, but that it
is very unfair to ask Wastell now to include Affordable Housing.
Councillor McNeil commented that we also have to explore our options by also finding
out about Provincial and Federal incentives programs, and by getting the County
onboard to make Affordable Housing a reality. Making a line in the sand and making
staff go away to change the terms and conditions of the agreement, is then, I think
you have a problem.
Discussion continued concerning options for financial incentives needed to get Affordable
Housing in Port Stanley.
A Motion by Councillor McNeil and Seconded by Councillor Carr that Report CEP 67.18
Affordable Housing & Plan of Subdivision Application 34T-CE1801 - 2526485 Ontario
Inc. (Seaglass) be received as information; And that the Council of the Municipality
of Central Elgin approve the attached municipal draft plan conditions in attached
Report CEP 59.18 to be forwarded to the Manager of Planning for the County of Elgin
with a request that they be included in the County's decision on the proposed draft
plan of subdivision.
The Motion was amended to include "And further that Council request staff to explore
the options for financial incentives for a potential CIP or otherwise as a means
to encourage developers to partner with the Municipality to achieve the Official
Plan requirements for Affordable Housing".
There was a recorded vote which resulted with only Deputy Mayor Martyn being opposed
to the motion. The Motion was Carried.

CAO 44-18 New Lease - Lions Landing Marina Park
Background: - The Lions Club of Port Stanley currently leases Municipally-owned
Lions Landing Marina Park. In 2016, the Lions Club wrote to the Municipality expressing
a desire to enter into a new twenty-year lease for the Park. The current lease enables
the Lions Club to operate a marina from the lands as a fundraiser for the Club's
community projects. Under the terms of the agreement, the Lions Club maintains the
Park and pays rent to the Municipality. Council designated Councillor Dan McNeil,
Councillor Harold Winkworth and the Chief Administrative Officer to meet with the
Lions Club to discuss the terms of a new lease and report back to Council.
Council, at its meeting of November 14, 2016, requesting the municipal solicitor
to prepare a new lease agreement for Lions Landing Marina Park based on the general
terms discussed by Councillor McNeil, Councillor Winkworth and the CAO with the
Club. These terms include:
- a ten year lease with two five year options;
- the existing lease would be cancelled upon entering into the new lease;
- net rent payable would be adjusted annually by CPI continuing from the rental amount
in the current lease save for payment of property taxes;
- the Lions Club would pay property taxes directly to the Municipality;
- the Lions Club will pay the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) water lot
lease/licence fee for the marina should one be imposed;
- the Lions Club will have the option to end the lease should the MNRF impose a fee
unacceptable to the Club;
- and the Lions Club dock rental fees are to be competitive with other marinas in
the community based on comparable services.
A Motion by Councillor Winkworth and Seconded by Councillor Carr that the Council
of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin receive CAO 44-18 New Lease
- Lions Landing Marina Park as information. The Motion was Carried.
CAO 45-18 Recreational Cannabis Framework
Background: - On September 29, 2018, the provincial government introduced
Bill 36, the Ontario Cannabis Statute Law Amendment Act. The bill, if enacted, will
amend the Act passed by the last Legislative Assembly, respecting the sale of recreational
cannabis in addition to a number of other changes to the recreational cannabis regulatory
framework. The Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) has produced a briefing
document for Ontario municipalities on the proposed legislation (copy attached).
This document is quite helpful in understanding the intent of the new provincial
government respecting the regulation of recreational cannabis.
Council should note that that the provincial government is proposing to provide
municipal councils with the option to opt out of hosting private retail cannabis
stores. Should a council not wish to permit retail sales of recreational cannabis
within a municipality, it must pass a resolution prior to January 22, 2019 and forward
the resolution to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). The AGCO,
pursuant to the bill, will have responsibility for licensing retail stores. It is
proposed that if a Council opts out of hosting retail stores, a subsequent resolution
can be passed that reverses the initial resolution. The latter Council decision
is final and cannot be subsequently changed. Since Bill 36 has not been passed nor
received Royal Assent, staff is uncertain of the validity of any resolution that
Council passes opting out of hosting private cannabis retail stores at this time.
However, the current status of the proposed legislation and regulations does not
prevent Council from passing a resolution making a recommendation to its successor
Council or from passing a resolution prior to the end of its term, should Bill 36
receive Royal Assent.
A Motion by Councillor Crevits and Seconded by Councillor Roberts that the Council
of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin receive Report CAO 45-18
Recreational Cannabis Framework as information. The Motion was Carried.
CAO 47-18 Renaming of Edith Street
Public Notice of Council's intention to pass a by-law to rename Edith Street in
the community of Port Stanley has been given. The notice indicates that the renamed
street is to be known as McKenzie or MacKenzie Lane to honour Private James William
McKenzie/MacKenzie who lost his life in France in October 2017 during World War
As Council is aware, there has been some confusion respecting the surname spelling.
At the September 24, 2018 Council meeting, staff reported the spelling as "MacKenzie"
based on military records. However, staff have undertaken additional record searches
which indicate the "McKenzie" spelling on other documents and on the family monument.
The documents located by staff include:
- Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force Attestation Paper - Surname was spelled "MacKenzie"
and signed by the recruit in two places as "MacKenzie"
- Commonwealth War Graves Register - Surname recorded as "MacKenzie", presumably because
this was the spelling used on the initial Attestation Paper.
- Birth Register - Surname was spelled "McKenzie" on 1897 register entry.
- Marriage Record - 1916 Marriage Record spells surname as "McKenzie". The surname
as part of the signature on the affidavit is illegible.
- Family monument in Union Cemetery spells surname "McKenzie".
Councillor Winkworth commented "The Prothero's do some incredible investigations
and that I would like to commend the Prothero's for all the work that they do."
A Motion by Deputy Mayor Martyn and Seconded by Councillor Carr that the Council
of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin approve the spelling of
the surname McKenzie to be included in the By-law to Renaming Edith Street as per
Report CAO 47-18. The Motion was Carried.
CAO 49-18 Proposed County of Elgin Woodlands Conservation By-law Amendment (Slope
Municipal staff have been working with the County of Elgin Chief Administrative
Officer (formerly Mark McDonald, now Julie Gonyou), County Tree Commissioner Jeff
Lawrence, and the County solicitor, Stephen Gibson, to develop a by-law to regulate
the cutting or injury of trees on significant slopes that may impact the stability
of the slope. In 2016, public information and input sessions were held to inform
the public of the proposed by-law, address questions, and receive comments on the
proposed draft. The most frequent comment or question related to the need to file
reports from an arborist and/or geotechnical engineer. As a result, a geotechnical
engineer, Phil Bedell, was consulted and developed a screening mechanism that may
be used by the Tree Commissioner to guide in the determination of whether a geotechnical
report is required in support of a slope permit application. The draft by-law was
revised to authorize the Tree Commissioner to provide preliminary direction to applicants
on the necessity of submitting an arborist report and/or geotechnical report.
A Motion by Councillor Crevits and Seconded by Councillor Winkworth that the Council
of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin request Elgin County Council
to pass an amendment to its Woodland Conservation By-law to regulate the harvest,
destruction or injury of trees upon specified slopes within the territorial limits
of the Municipality of Central Elgin And further that said amendment be substantially
consistent with the draft amending by-law attached to Report CAO 49-18. The Motion
Director of Physical Services
PW 33-18 Gateway Speed Zone Signs - CRR Approval
Background: - At the September 10th, 2018 meeting of Council staff were directed
to move forward with the installation of Gateway Speed Zone signage throughout the
municipality. This initiative would result in all residential areas having the speed
reduced throughout the municipality. A copy of that report is attached for Council's
At the September 24th meeting of Council, Bylaw 2301, Gateway Signage - Reduced
Speed was adopted by Council.
Staff would note that this project was not contemplated in late 2017 when the budget
process was underway for 2018, as the Highway Traffic Act did not contemplate Gateway
Speed Zones at the time. As a result, Council needs to provide budget approval to
complete the physical installation of the signs. The total cost to install the signage
throughout the municipality is $37,100.
A Motion by Councillor Roberts and Seconded by Deputy Mayor Martyn that the Council
of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin receive report PW 33-18
Gateway Speed Zone Signs - CRR Approval as information. And further that Council
approve the Capital Project Record for the installation of Gateway Speed Zone signs
in Residential neighbourhoods in Central Elgin. And further that said project be
funded by the rate stabilization fund. The Motion was Carried.
PW 34-18 George St./Bridge St./William St. Intersection Operational Changes
Currently the George Street, Bridge Street, and William Street intersection is under
a 3 way stop control. Specifically East Bound (EB) George St., South Bound (SB)
and North Bound (NB) William St. are all required to stop at the intersection. West
Bound (WB) Bridge St. has right-away for both strait through (WB on George) as well
as left turn (SB) onto William St. The current arrangement is a result of the fact
that Sunset, Colborne, Bridge and William Streets previously being provincial highway
No. 4. At that time it was the "norm" to give the provincial highway the right-away
at intersections such as the one in question.
Staff would note that this intersection was reviewed by Paradigm Traffic Engineers
on behalf of Wastell Developments and Dillon Consulting on behalf of the municipality
and both engineers are recommending that operational changes be made to the intersection
to improve current traffic flow. The end result of the operational changes will
convert the existing intersection from a three way stop condition to a two way stop
condition. The EB George St, and WB Bridge street will be a free flow condition
with NB and SB William St. being controlled by stop signs. This operational change
will require WB Bridge street traffic that is making a left turn SB on William St.
to yield to oncoming traffic for EB George St. traffic. This final layout will allow
traffic from Mitchell Heights to exist the area west of William St. with no delay
from oncoming traffic. As well, the amount of traffic that is coming from Mitchell
Heights is not sufficient enough (even with full build out of Wastell) to impose
long delays and extended cues for WB traffic making a left turn to travel SB on
A Motion by Councillor Winkworth and Seconded by Councillor Crevits that the Council
of the Corporation of the Municipality of Central Elgin receive report PW 34-18
George St./Bridge St./William St. Intersection Operational Changes as information.
And that Council approve implementing Option 2 (full implementation) respecting
operational changes to signage at the intersection of George Street, Bridge Street,
and William Street. The Motion was Carried.

Councillor Roberts asked about Cyber Security measures that are currently in place
in Central Elgin's operations and if insurance covers any damages incurred if Central
Elgin has Cyber Security issues. Karen Harris replied saying that Central Elgin
has passed penetration testing and that our insurance provider has offered a quote
on Cyber insurance.
Deputy Mayor Martyn advised Council that a Heritage Designation Ceremony of Sanderson
House located at 46083 Sparta Line would happen on Sunday, October 14th at 2:00
p.m. She also wanted to know if a Family Day or Night for the children going to
the new Kettle Creek School could be organized at the Port Stanley Arena to help
support the integration of Sparta students into the new school, and to waive the
fees associated with the event. Staff would determine available times for the event
and associated costs including insurance and provide details back to Council.
Mayor Marr would like to have Council agree to write letters to our MP and MPP asking
that when grants are being announced that the announcement for the grant be delayed
to a time after a tender has been awarded for the project to control contractor
price speculation. Council agreed to send letters.
